Speaking: Journeys (The loss of a child)

A few weeks ago I spoke at Cambridge Community Church with my wife in a talk entitled Journeys. We spoke about a particularly hard time in our life: seven years ago when we lost our beautiful 12 week old baby girl in a car crash.

Perhaps this is a slightly unusual (and somber) topic for this blog, but if you're interested in our deeply personal and unashamedly Christian viewpoint on the loss of a child, and the importance of our faith, the support of friends, and the church family then you can hear the pair of us speak here. We begin speaking about 24 minutes in.

In the talk we mentioned the song I played at Jess' thanksgiving service, and a few people have subsequently asked about it. If you'd like to listen, there's a rough version of it available to listen to on MySpace here.

Why was there no follow on bankruptcy then? The bailout of AIG FP went to (wow power leveling) hedge funds that bound credit swaps on Lehman failing or others betting on rating (wow power leveling) declines. AIG has drained over 100 billion from the government. Which had to go to (wow power leveling) those who bet on failures and downgrades. Many of whom (power leveling)were hedge funds. I-banks that had offsetting swaps needed the money from the AIG bailout or they would have been caught. Its an (wow powerleveling) insiders game and it takes just a little bit too much time for most people to think (wow gold) through where the AIG 100 billion bailout money went to, hedge funds and players, many of whom hire from the top ranks of DOJ, Fed, Treasury, CAOBO
